I have a cherry look laminate entertainment center. It is in need of some repair. I purchased it for $5 at a garage sale so I am unsure what happened, but one corner is pretty chewed up. I sanded it as smooth as possible, but now I am unsure of how to make it look cherry again! It is a somewhat small section. I think it is to porous to stain. Can I buy strips of laminate at my home store? It has a few scratches here and there as well. It is otherwise a very pretty piece and much worth the money. What are my best bets for repair?
